Tottenham draws 1-1 with West Brom in Premier League

Johannesburg, Dec 27: New Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has suffered a frustrating start to his reign after the club drew 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane on Thursday in the Premier League.

West Brom, who is on the lookout for a new manager following Steve Clarke’s exit, had hardly thrown caution to the wind as they packed their defence and looked to hit the home side on the counter-attack.

However, Sport24 reports that Sherwood, who was handed a surprise 18-month contract following a short caretaker spell, held true to his word of vowing to go on the attack and maintained faith in his two-pronged attack, which had served him well in his caretaker reign.

Jonas Olsson cancelled out Christian Eriksen’s free-kick opener to drop Tottenham down to eighth in the Premier League, the report added. (ANI)
